    CO - Dammion Heard, 20, Gunnison, 30 March 2014

    "In the hours before he apparently committed suicide by hanging himself from a tree on a moonless, frigid night, Dammion Heard was busy. He was making plans that had nothing to do with death."

    "Parents dispute findings that their star wrestler son, 20, killed himself as it's revealed the college student got into a fight the night he went missing"

    Dammion Heard

    More from Denver Post story:

    "The 20-year-old Western State Colorado University standout wrestler made arrangements with a friend to share an off-campus apartment next semester. He talked on the phone with his father, Gary, in Fort Worth, Texas, about the hike he planned to take the next day, about how his knee-injury rehabilitation was coming along and about a party he would be attending that evening with other wrestlers.

    Dammion went to that party and got into several altercations with other students because he thought they were treating a girl poorly, friends later told his father. He might have been only 5-feet-7 and less than 130 pounds, but he was known as the protector type."

    "Perhaps most bizarre of all, Dammion can be seen on surveillance footage from a local gas station filling up his Saturn supposedly just minutes before he drove to a field and hung himself."

    Don't know how I didn't hear anything about this before! Hope Gunnison Police Dept. is thoroughly investigating this now.

    Thanks for all these links Rhino-Esq.
    I feel for his parents, and like his dad said that it doesn't make sense, it seems fishy.
    I hope they get more answers, and get down to the truth of what happened to Dammion.
    It looks like there's more media coverage now, so that's good.

    It does seem fishy- I am glad media is on it too. It appears the family has retained Pamela Mackey (Kobe Bryant defense attorney) along with a private investigation team, who will begin their own investigation into the death of Dammion. I too am hoping they will get to the truth.

    They've set up a FB memorial page as well:

    What do you have to do to be a Law officer in this town? Not much by the sounds of it.

    Surely when they saw him filling up with petrol it would have rung some bells. Who would bother with petrol if they are going to hang themselves?

    Story changed to two men dragging him by his neck. Have they been interviewed or are they related to any of the Law Enforcement officers?

    I will follow this with interest. I pray that justice comes to the Heard family and maybe
    some heads will roll in the police department and they will then employ talented enthusiastic Police Officers. JMOO

    Photos: Dammion Heard's family suspects foul play in wrestler's apparent suicid

    The Denver Post is only the latest major news organization to examine the circumstances of Dammion's death. Earlier this month, for instance, the story was featured on Good Morning America; we've got that video below.
    Dammion's body was found hanging from a tree near U.S. Highway 50 outside Gunnison, and an autopsy found he'd died of strangulation. Moreover, authorities put out a press release stating that while the investigation into the death was ongoing, no other suspects were being pursued.

    However, Dammion's father Gary, who lives in Texas, holds fast to the belief that Dammion wasn't suicidal -- a contention he supports with assorted anecdotes

    http://www.hlntv.com/video/2014/04/1...uicide-mystery

    Some other facts I note from interview with father/JVM:

    - Dammion went missing on March 29th
    - Body found on April 2nd around midday
    - No note, no history of depression
    - Had just fueled car
    - DH's cell phone found with battery removed
    - Car doors locked
    - DH may have been involved in 3 altercations on night/early morning he disappeared
    - According to DH's father- DH was attacked inside a house by 2 other men.
    - Recorded statements at Gunnison PD by these men stating this - one of them grabbed him from behind and dragged him into a laundry room - that's where things get vague about what happened

    Something is definitely setting off my hinky meter on this one. Nothing I have read points towards Dammion taking his own life. Praying for justice.

    Rest in peace, dear Dammion.

    According to the Dammion Heard Memorial FB page, Denver's 9 News will be running a story about him tonight and will stream it live on their website. I'm not sure of the time but will keep an eye out for it. Also, Dammion's Dad is doing an interview with Dallas' Channel 8 news that will air tonight 10pm.

    Link to the memorial page: https://www.facebook.com/DammionHeardMemorial

    I will post links once the stories are posted. I am so glad the media is staying on top of this story!

    An all-around amazing, stand-up young man who did not deserve whatever may have happened to him.
